    I was wanting to know how much difference there was between some of the different Cal. and I found this. I guess there all about the same. I still love my 40 S&W.

    It looks like they all penetrated the same, but the disruption of tissue is greater when you look at the 357 Sig, 40 and 45. I would feel good about using 9mm, though.

    I have seen all these tests.. blah blah velocity blah blah enery blah blah

    personally I like the 45, it can take a rabbits head off at point point blank range. One time I was shooting rabbits with my Sig 9mm... it took 4 shots before the thing fell over.

    remember there is a difference between temporary and perminite wound chanels. Gelitan tends to exagerate the temporary wound chanel

    Did the first three miss?????


    What I was showing is that they are all pretty much the same. I wouldn't want to be hit with any of them.
